Juan Cuadrado hit a straight corner kick, easily beating Juventus Genoa 2-0 on Sunday to advance to sixth place after coach Massimiliano Alegri won his 250th Serie A victory.
In the eighth minute Quadrato sent a high ball into the top corner of the goal to put Juventus ahead, and in the last minutes Paulo Dybala scored a goal to secure the victory.
It was the eighth goal in a corner kick in the Italian league since 2010, but strangely enough, it was the second goal of the round after Hagan Calhanoklu’s goal for Inter Milan 3-0 against Roma on Saturday.
“We (Quadrado) told us he wanted the cross,” Dipala told DAZON.
“We controlled the whole game and the guards helped us get to the top. We were very calm after Quadrato’s goal, but we had to do things in advance.”
Juventus advanced to sixth place with 27 points after fifth-placed Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti with 250 points to reach 250 league victories, with Fiorentina tied for fifth with three points in the winning streak.
Andrei Shevchenko, the coach of Genoa, will continue to look forward to his first victory, and the struggling Ukrainian team is still in 18th place with ten points.
Juventus could have won by more goals if they had finished the game with 70 per cent and scored 27 balls for Genoa, converting complete control into goals.
After Quadrato’s corner kick, Genoa goalkeeper Salvador Sirigu saved a header and saved a header from Matisse de Ligt, then saved Alvaro Morata’s attempt in the first half, before the Spanish striker blocked another goal after the break.
In the 65th minute, Siriko saved two consecutive attempts by Dipala and Quadrato.
Morata got into an argument off the field with Allegri when he came on as a substitute in the 73rd minute, but the tension ended when Juventus secured the victory with a goal from Dipala eight minutes from the end.
“I didn’t want to change him, but he got a yellow card, and I wanted to get him out,” Allegri said. “Nothing happened and I’m sorry Alvaro played better without scoring.”
